Joe Miller Drops to Third Place

Looks like Joe Miller’s scandals may be catching up with him: A new poll in Alaska shows him in third place behind Senator Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Scott McAdams. Murkowski, waging a write-in campaign, polls at 34 percent, while McAdams polls at 29 percent. Miller has fallen to 23 percent. Jon Karl points out that, because many of Murkowski’s write-in votes are likely to be thrown out, McAdams’ 29 percent could be enough to win.
